Octomore 8.3

The smokiest and most intense Octomore ever bottled. The late harvest barley from Octomore farm has been peated to a tremendous 309.1ppm before being slowly distilled in the traditional whisky making style of Bruichladdich. It has been mostly matured in ex-bourbon cask but a good portion of the whisky has matured in Paulliac, Ventoux, Rhone and Burgundy wine casks.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Toasted oak and muddy/peaty smoke, bandages. Maple syrup, fresh linen, sea shells. Evokes a memory of lying in the heather on the peat moss, the warm sun coaxing the scent from the wild flowers. The fruit is cherry, peach and mango, with crème brulee and toffee from the oak and barley.

Palate: Initially a surprise as the stellar level of peat is bitter and over-whelming. Another sip opens with up with cherry and peach and toasted sweet oak, dark chocolate, boot polish and seaweed. At this level the peat is like a thunder cloud, darkening the atmosphere. You can feel it in your bones.

Finish: Complex, crème brulee with caramelised brown sugar slightly overdone. Dark plum, orange and kiwi sit well with the malted barley sweetness. The peat smoke is a tremendous presence offering roasted coffee, burnt heather and a place in your memory forever.
